BLACK DRESS DAY! The 8th August is Sophia Mirza's birth date. This year would have been Sophia's 40th birthday. Sophia died from severe Myalgic Encephalomyelitis at the age of 32 as a result of medical abuse and ignorance. Sadly no lessons have been learned since her tragic death.

And so it would be if they truly had a cure for cancer -- the patients would be bragging "I was cured by eating SomeWeirdStuff" to anyone who would listen. The government couldn't keep the patients quiet. Even if the government threatened them to say nothing, there will always ALWAYS be someone like me who doesn't give a hoot about threats and will shoot off my mouth regardless.

Dear Team Canary,
I'm thrilled to announce that Canary in a Coal Mine has been chosen as a Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program grantee. We are one of 44 projects selected from over 600 applications from 69 countries around the world.
The Sundance Institute is non-profit organization that provides creative and financial support to filmmakers and independent artists developing original stories for screen and stage. Among its many events, it hosts the Sundance Film Festival each year in Park City, Utah, one of the country's premiere venues for independent film.
With this grant comes the opportunity for a working relationship with Sundance throughout the rest of the production of the film, as well as opportunities to participate in fellowships and workshops with leading filmmakers.
We who have been made voiceless and invisible for too long know the power and importance of our story. To change minds in the larger world, however, we must reach beyond our community to inspire and motivate to action an even wider circle of allies. The support of the Sundance Institute will greatly help our efforts to bring Canary to the widest possible audience.
My thanks to all of you for believing in this film. We still have a very long way to go, but I am amazed at how far we have already come, together.
